Sources for Presidential Documents

by Emily Rogers on January 30, 2017 in Government Documents, Odum Library, Reference

Federal government web sites provide a number of sources for Presidential documents, including Executive Orders and Memoranda:

The Press Secretary’s Office at Whitehouse.gov provides copies of Presidential Actions including those most recently proclaimed.

The Federal Register publishes official versions of Executive Orders, usually the first business day after they are announced.

Daily and weekly compilations of Presidential documents back to 1992 are available through the federal government’s official publication site, FDSys.

For more historical information, the American Presidency Project, hosted by the University of California at Santa Barbara, offers an archive of a variety of Presidential documents, including State of the Union addresses to Congress, Presidential candidate debates, and Executive Orders.
